I am hopeful I will make your learning both satisfying as well as fun! I am a certified teacher in Pennsylvania and Texas. I also have two masters degrees from Wilkes University. One is in technology and the other is in leadership. I have taught middle school math and science for more than 20 years. I understand the mindset of this level of student. I have also tutored students in algebra and geometry. Having served as my school district's math specialist, I am familiar with the requirements needed to be successful on standardized tests. In addition, I have done extensive private tutoring and enjoy the satisfaction gained when my student "gets it!" My tutoring has usually been done face-to-face, but I have also been very successful using technology such as face-time and text messaging to help my students understand. I am looking forward to this opportunity to help you, my future student.
My ability to listen and desire to understand you and where you might be “stuck,” make me an outstanding math tutor. I have extensive experiences in techniques that work and am willing to try various approaches to suit your needs. I will start with the basics and from where you are solid in your understanding while also addressing your immediate learning needs.
I have successfully tutored students who have been enrolled in cyber-school programs. I am willing to go above and beyond for my students.
Please contact me to see if I am a good fit for you or your child. Parental contact is requested before I work with your child.

I enjoy teaching English grammar. Diagramming sentences may be old school, but I find the visual connections between words lead to a better understanding. I am looking forward to meeting you as my student!

I not only can "do" math, I enjoy math! I am patient with my students, encouraging them to do their best. I have a knack for "reading my students" and will not allow them to reach their frustration point. Although I also enjoy teaching higher level math, knowing that the foundational skills are often established in the elementary years, I am keen on making sure my students understand each skill, as it is often the basis for later understanding.

Pam is THE. BEST!!

My daughter needed tutoring because she was failing every math test and quiz at school. Coming home with F’s every week and feeling very discouraged. So she started tutoring with Pam about a month ago, and she is already getting high B’s on her tests and quizzes now, plus she has a confidence with math that I have never seen before!! She finally understands the concepts and Pam is so encouraging and explains things so well to her. We are so grateful to have found Pam, and I highly recommend her!!

Hannah, 7 lessons with Pam

Great teacher.

Pam is very experienced and she exactly knows what to do to help student. Great experience and my daughter loves her. She is fun too.

Mehrian , 14 lessons with Pam

Patient and Knowledgeable

Pam is patient and professional. Excellent interpersonal skills. Works well with kids to get their attention and able to get them to open their minds to the concept she is passing along.

Charles, 2 lessons with Pam

Great interaction with my 6 year old.

She is absolutely wonderful..I would highly recommend her. She spent time to get to know me and my son. She asked lots of questions and provided ideas for next steps.

Amber, 21 lessons with Pam

Her years of experience truly show!

We’ve had a few lessons with Pam so far and have loved every minute. My seven-year-old daughter struggles some days more than others with focus and drive. Pam meets my child at her level, where she is at in that moment emotionally. One lesson was particularly difficult because my daughter was not cooperating and didn’t want to sit through the lesson. Pam saw that struggle and encouraged her, worked with her through that and by the end of the lesson, my daughter was focused and engaged. She has a way with kids, that’s is very clear. She wants the kids to love learning first and then she imparts the knowledge when they can receive it!

Madison, 15 lessons with Pam

Great tutor!!

So glad to have picked Ms. Pam for my daughter. She is very patient, she always asks if there is anything we would like to cover or if A is having trouble understanding anything and if so she covers it. If A has homework she doesn't understand we know we can count on Ms. Pam to help. Ms. Pam checks on progress during the week, and also sends practice work if needed. We will continue to use Ms. Pam for as long as needed.

Tanya , 20 lessons with Pam

Amazing tutor

Pam tutors my nine-year-old in pretty much every subject. She’s amazing! She very patient, straightforward, and very understanding. She works with him and makes sure he understands everything by the end of the session. I would definitely recommend her to other people.

Gabrielle, 36 lessons with Pam

Experienced and organized tutor!

Pam has been working with our kids in different grades 1-5. She makes their lessons fun, and is always prepared with customized materials for each grade level.

Gennady, 12 lessons with Pam

Excellent tutor!

Pam has been working with my son, 9 year old with reading comprehension and writing. She is very patient, clear and a straightforward person. She adds humor to our sessions to keep them vibrant! She is new to Wyzant but has picked up very fast. Highly recommended!!
